    Default Moomba Craz Props

    Hello

    I am looking at buying a new moomba craz. I noticed that there were three different props. one for altitude/wake, surf/speed, and general use. Is there a major performance difference between the different props and is it worth the extra $200 to upgrade it?

    Yeah, there is a big difference and much cheaper to get the right one from the start.

    Altitude and ballast are the main parameters driving prop selection.

    If you plan on running extra ballast over stock, go for the surf prop.

    The pitch, cupping and blade size affect propulsion very much like gear ratios in a car or truck.

    An aggressive prop will give you better hole shot under heavy load while reducing the rpms necessary to maintain momentum...at the sacrifice of top end speed.

    If you primarily wakeboard, the wake prop is more suited for those speeds.

    Short answer yes $200 bucks is worth the upgrade, that’s pretty reasonable for most props. It also totally depends if your going to drive your boat heavily weighted or at high altitudes.

    Check these guys out, there’s a lot of good info on both altitude and weight for props on here:

    I’m not anway affiliated by or for them. They were a great of source for me.

    If your ordering a new 2020 and at low altitude, it was recommended when we ordered to run the new "general prop" unless you were just going to slam the boat all the time or higher altitude. The 2020 gear ratio allowed for a change in props from previous years which were recommended to run the upgraded props. I haven't had a chance to get on the water with our Makai yet as the weather hasn't been in our favor.
